A client is insisting to install CentOS 6.2 32 bit version [1] on a
system with 4GB RAM.

Lately, I have done 64 bit installations only; not sure if the 32 bit
kernel supports pae for >= 4GB RAM.

If anyone knows the answer please let me know (will save me time on an
installation in my setup).

[1] The Client's ERP vendor has validated the application on the 32
bit platform only thus the reason for 32 bit version.
